Does Williams pay off student loans for some students but not others? A reader reports in this thread that

Williams is also extremely generous to alumni who choose to work in service-oriented jobs. They are paying off my Perkins loans, 25% a year, while I work as a teacher in a low income area. By the end of 5 years, my entire debt to Williams (about 10,000 dollars) will be paid off. My Stafford loans (which are paid directly to the federal government) are a slightly different story, but the government also helps pay down those loans for people in public service jobs.

Really? I have never heard of this program. Is it described anywhere on the web? Do many Ephs take advantage of it? What is the definition of “public service” used? Details, please.
